Let's Dance!

Sunday, May 22, 2016

Many times on my commute home at dusk I wished that I could capture the setting sun over the everglades with my kids. But I never had the opportunity until January when my eldest was traveling home with me from a weekend Irish dance class. Among other steps, she has been practicing “the bird”, a move where an Irish dancer jumps mid-air with one leg outstretched and the other leg tucked under. As I glanced over at the setting sun, we devised a plan. Pulling off the freeway to the makeshift carpark and with just minutes of available light to spare, we jumped out of the car and ran up the hill.
"The Bird"
We started with some skips and captured "the bird,” but the real magic started just as the sun set and I told her to try whatever move she wanted.
